Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 4, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Medical Help for Korea Korea's medical facilities have improved for those who can afford them. Today four doc- tors make a comfortable liv- ing in the little village down (lie hill. Most of (lie 100 daily pa- licilts at Jcong I'yeong clinic in central Korea arc timid, embarrassed and fearful Maryknoll Sister Anna land, a Strawberry Point na- tive, the director and usually the only doctor present, knows their fears reflect physical and financial worries.

"An ailing farmer will begin to feel Improved after a few visits. Concerned at even the clinic's low fee, he'll quit com- ing. But .some month.1! later he's forced by the same illness to return and the cycle begins all over again." The clinic is known espe- cially for its treatment of heart and kidney diseases as well as children's ailments. Communicable diseases, snakebites and serious burns requiring skin grafts also are common among patients. be- gan in 195C, the rural area had no doctor. However, Dedicated alizo. Most of the people in the area avoid doctor bills if at all possible. "Even the clinic's all- inclusive fee is troublesome at times, for both patient and said the Rev. Angelo The Maryknoll Sisters, who sponsor the clinic, are a com- munity of religious women de- dicated to a life of service in the missionary work of the church overseas and in the U.S. Of the sisters in the community, 725 serve in 22 countries of Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Cen- tral Pacific. The clinic no longer treats tuberculosis, Korea's most prevalent disease. "One of the nurses and I spend a half-day each week at the city health center ex- amining tuberculosis explains Sister Anna. "This amounts to a community ser- vice donation on our part. The patients are far too numerous and the treatment too pro- longed for us to handle effec- tively. Moreover, the Korean government conducts tubercu- losis programs. Instead of competing, we participate in their earned an RN from Mercy school of nursing in Cedar Rapids prior to her entrance into Maryknoll in 1949. She received a bachelor of science degree from Good Counsel college, White Plains, N.Y. and an MD from the University of St. Louis school of medicine in 1902. She won a fellowship for foreign study from Smith, Kline and French and spent three months at the Maryknoll hospital in Pusan, Korea. Sister Anna served her in- ternsLp at St. Vincent's hos- pital, New York City, and completed a two-year surgical residency at Carney hospital, Boston. She was assigned to Korea in 19C5 after Korean language study at Yonsei university in Seoul. She has been at the Maryknoll clinic at Pyeong in central since. Jeong Korea Clinic Staff Sister Anna Boland, Strawberry- Point native, examines a child with an unsightly birthmark on her face, which will be corrected by skin grafting. Earned Degree Sister Anna attended Straw- berry Point public schools and With Sister Anna, the clinic staff of 26 now includes four Maryknoll Sisters who are registered nurses, a Korean doctor on a part-time basis, two Korean nurses and 12 aides, plus office staff and caretakers. The Korean doctor directs a mobile unit from the clinic's automobile. Twice a week a public health team makes trips through the farming area in which an estimated people live. 'Sister Anna said, "Medical care is available for those who can pay for it today. Why should I be downtown treating a wealthy woman with a head- ache when I can be here car- ing for a little farm, girl with a bone disease." Reflections on Day of Prayer Last Tuesday was pro- claimed by congress as a National 'Day Humilia- tion, Fasting and Prayer. Here are the thoughts of .one person who, tried to ob- serve the day as the plan- ners intended. Tuesday, April 30. I was dreading this day, but for some reason, I knew I would go through with it. Perhaps I was shamed by knowledge that thousands have died for their faith and that most of the world goes to bed hungry every night. Sure- ly, at the very least, I could go without food for one day. I felt almost guilty, asking God to give me 'strength to do this thing. But I know how weak I am and I know He does too. Reminders My head is aching and I feel nauseous and dizzy. It occurs to me that frustration has been a more irritating com- panion today than hunger. Re- minders of food were con- stant. I feel a twinge of dis- gust, now at the Importance I have given to what is more pleasurable habit than physi- cal need. It is p.m. and I am beginning'.-to waver. In only'1 .one hour and 45 minutes it will be 24 hours since I had my last bite of. solid food. Is that long enough for this unfa- miliar form of self-discipline to do its work? Do I. really have to see it through until morning? Prayer Part of1 the day I spent in prayer, .mostly for myself rather than the country in general because I believe the "self" must change before there is any real hope for the nation. I also read the letters of Peter who had some encour- aging words to offer on endur- ing hardship. It is almost embarrassing to admit maybe because it seems so arrogant that to- night I think I am more aware of one aspect of Christ's death on the Cross. And that is that it was done willingly. Just as easily as I could end my dis- comfort by walking to the re- frigerator, Christ could have called down legions of angels to end His suffering. Contrasted with His sacri- fice, mine seems paltry and frivolous. Tonight it is more clear to me than ever how little is asked of us here in the United States, in Cedar Rapids, in my own comfortable neigh- borhood. How insulated we are from hardship. I can shrug .off the protests of my pampered body now because I know I am doing this to myself and I can end it at .any time. I realize I know little of real suffering. My children were well fed today, well clothed and well protected. I am spared the heartache of millions of the world's parents who watch their little ones go to sleep crying and hungry, perhaps hurt or cold. I thank God, but it doesn't seem like enough.
